SEYVAL NOUVEAU 2019
This sparkling was produced with Seyval Blanc grapes from our first day of harvest (Sept 9 2019) A lovely sparkling offering orchard based aromas of crisp apple and pear. Hints of exotic dragon fruit, subtle notes of floral and a whisper of minerality completes the profile. A clean refreshing sparkling wine with a clean finish. 3g/L Residual Sugar
Spicy Asian dishes, fried foods, quiche, popcorn
Nouveau – A nouveau wine (traditionally Beaujolais Nouveau made from Gamay Noir in Beaujolais France) is the first wine released after harvest – the third Thursday in November. Often displaying tutti fruitti notes, un oaked, a quick to release wine and meant to be drank within the year.
Seyval is a Seyve-Villard hybrid of complex V. vinifera, V. rupestris, and V.aestivalis var. lincecumii parentage. A cold hardy variety that is tolerant to many soil types and yields a mildly fruity white wine with common flavours of floral, citrus, apricot, and plum. It can sometimes show rather neutral with crisp acidity which makes it a great blending variety.
